Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.
I pretty much stick to the genres I like, although I like to venture out of my comfort zone now and again. I used to have a terrible bias against non fiction, since I have to read so much of it as a teacher, for my classes, it got old, repetitive, and was often dull. Nothing compared to imagination and fantasy worlds of fiction! But then I realized it was really the types of non fiction I was reading, and since I like to read people's diaries (!) I started moving more towards memoir in my non fiction choices, and that's helped a lot.
